Gensler L.A. office moved from Santa Monica to a highly visible area of downtown Los Angeles in 2012. At the time, the need of the office was desks for their employees, parking and to facilitate future growth.
Flanked by two towers, the lower middle section is where the new office was inserted. They opened a new operable skylight to cap the central atrium and hung a mezzanine in order to break up the grandness of the space in order for the guests and clients to feel invited.
From the central atrium, meeting rooms stack and cantilever around it, with different cladding materials such as glass, zinc and white polycarbonate, creating a vibrant energy around the atrium.
